Supercharger On An St170 Engine

Recommended Posts

So here we go again....apologies if this is getting a bit boring now lol.

 

This time we've got a gbs zero (Whiz's), an ST170 engine and the good old MP62 charger.

 

I've cleared out the intake side of the engine bay and cut away a chassis diagonal (to be replace with a modified version later).

 

At this stage, it always looks like there's loads of room....until the charger is dropped into position...

I'll be watching with interest, just about to fit ST170 to Zero.

This will never get boring to watch, the engineering is amazing. Keep it coming.

 

The only doubts I have are whether it really is sensible to let Whiz loose with a supercharged car. ;)

The ST170 Zetec puts out about 164bhp what is the expected bhp and torque after conversion?

My ST currently puts out 194bhp I'm hoping for mid to high 200's

Something over 200bhp and similar torque would be good for my Fury, I'm still fiddling with the Pinto for the S3

So this week's progress has been to machine and fit the charger pulley, machine the front charger bracket (rough - tidy this up later), squeeze the charger into the engine bay leaving room for the jenveys and then made a start on the alternator top bracket which will house an idle pulley.

Interested why you should keep the Jenveys? Seems a big single throttle body would do the job fine and the Jenveys could help finance the conversion. Just like a 'normal' zetec conversion. And it all fits under the bonnet.
